This is the last stitch for this year. The working of the stitch is on Pintangle.
I started with threading both sides of the cable stitch on this sampler. The threading is done twice in same direction in the second sample. The threading is done on another row of cable chain on its return journey in the third sample.my cable chains need improvement.

Threaded cable chain stitch is worked on a curve in the first sample. The second sample is of threaded zigzag cable chain stitch. Two rows of cable chain are threaded together in the third sample.

I copied ideas from laced running stitch on these three samples. I like the last sample.

The threading is done differently in the first sample, instead of going around the side of the cable chain, it is twisted on detached chain stitches-chains hanging from chains! The cable chains have french knots in the second sample. Alternate cable chains are woven in the third sample. The last sample is a trial of combining cable chain and butterfly chain, which failed, but working the threaded cable chain over straight stitches was possible.

The sampler with its gold threading, apt for the season I suppose.
